Nokia get the flip on tough and smart new phones at IFA Berlin Consumer Electronics show

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, announced five new Nokia phones, three of which will be available in Ireland from October, including a new smartphone, the Nokia 7.2, a class-defining smartphone with a powerful 48MP triple camera featuring ZEISS Optics.

While so many companies are striving to produce high-end, expensive phones, Nokia is expanding its range to address new network and market categories. The Nokia 800 Tough is the first rugged Nokia phone from HMD Global, representing a new hallmark in Nokia phone durability and battery life.

For those who are not interested in an all-out smartphone, the new Nokia 2720 Flip is compact in a classic form factor but with integrated AI technology. This makes it an ideal phone for consumers with accessibility needs or perhaps for those looking for a digital detox.

In addition, both the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 take a leap forward in craftsmanship and materials exploration bringing premium Nordic designs to the mid-segment.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global said: “Our mid-range portfolio has always been acknowledged for exceeding fans’ expectations. Both the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 carry forward the same philosophy of delivering premium experiences at exceptional value. From the powerful 48MP triple camera imaging featuring ZEISS Optics on the Nokia 7.2, to the best-in-class PureDisplay on smartphones the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 bring the best experiences to our fans.
